Repurposed Vases!

Do you have a bunch of vases on hand? Try these couple repurposed ideas – ghost & pumpkin vases

I sprayed the 2 ghost vases with this spray. Once it’s dry – add permanent marker eyes to the ghosts.
The pumpkin vase I painted with folk art acrylic paint on the inside. On the outside of the pumpkin I took some steel wire from the dollar store and added some green beads to it for the vine. I hot glued that plus a few leaves to the outside.

I decided to keep mine outside and added solar lights to them.

I placed the frosted vase over top of the solar light like he was flying.

  1. So cute! Love the little ghost in the pot! Rustoleum spray paints are on sale at our Valu Home Store this week! (although I’m not sure if it includes the frosted.) I’d love to take a basket, painted orange, add some mums and put that little ghost right in front. I have too many DIY projects going right now that I have GOT to finish, but I just love this one.

    1. Thank you Linda πŸ™‚ I love that you have a sale near you currently too! Like the basket idea with the ghost in front. Me too on the projects – I have a large pile…

  2. ps: I think I need to create a pinterst board just called Chas Creations! You have a fabulous imagination for fun little project that can make a difference!

    1. Linda you just made my morning, thank you for the nice comments and making me smile πŸ™‚

  3. Any time. You know I told you that I don’t join many newsletter lists, but I truly love the things you do. Will I ever be able to do all of them – nope, but today, if the kids can handle being inside, we’re going to make the pumpkins with the solar light. I couldn’t find a terra cotta pot, but I did find Carve-able pumpkins at the dollar store. I can carve out the spot for the light and they can paint the rest plus add the leaves. I also got black roses because my 3 year old grandson is ‘into’ black. I’m hoping he won’t paint the whole pumpkin black if he can do the face and at the black rose to the top. The weather is pretty good this week so we may end up outside and make the pumpkin next week. We’ll see. You know how it is with kids, you have to catch them at the right time!

    1. Thank you again Linda – so sweet of you. I love the creative adaptation to the solar lights you’re doing with the kids. Please send me pictures, I’d love to see them!
